The Daviess County Health Department announces as of the time of this release, since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in April, the total deaths remain at 17 and the total confirmed positive cases are at 77 in Daviess County.
Of those 77 cases, 45 have fully recovered and 19 are currently in quarantine. Since May 18 (our last reporting date), Daviess County has seen three new positive confirmed cases. Those three people are included in the 19 that have been placed in quarantine. Those who have had direct contact with all positive cases have been notified.
Our department will distribute any pertinent COVID-19 information to the public as soon as possible. We will update the public on positive case numbers and deaths periodically throughout each work week.
As we move through the stages of the “Back on Track Indiana” guidance, we hope everyone continues to follow social distancing guidelines and protects yourself and those who are at the highest risk: our elderly population and/or those with pre-existing health conditions.
